Even in this spiritual crisis however she proves to be way out of her depth.
chinmaya
This is a wonderful, gripping story of a remarkable woman, but also a very important historical record, a first-hand account of a time almost forgotten to us today.
Alexander Rapoport
I've recommended this book to several friends who have also read it, and they all confess they cant put it down either.

I enjoyed this book cover to cover! It really took me back to my own counter culture days and the wild, really fun and sometimes harrowing adventures we all had... The author's memory is astounding, her account is so detailed, paints a very visceral and vivid portrait of her experiences. Also loved all the great photos from the era. A great entertaining read that will transport you on a wild ride to the Far East without getting out of your armchair!

Format: Paperback
It is a rare person who can review their life without resort to spin; after all who of us truly wants to portray ourselves publicly warts and all? Ann BeCoy, in writing about her year in India in 1972, has achieved this feat and taken the reader inside the mind of a naiive19-year old from Toronto who accidentally finds herself in a continent about which she knows absolutely nothing.

Ann originally wrote in 1984, just twelve years after the experiences she describes, using the third person. This re-write of recent years, in the first person, resists all temptations to comment from a mature perspective and allows us to participate in her journey as if we travelled with her. What a journey it was!

And what an era it was. The hippy phenomenon had flowered and gone to seed in the West, but lived on in the mass migration to the mystic East that took place on the road to Kathmandu in the 1970’s. Suddenly the answers to questions about peace and love, free sex and drug use seemed to have answers in an ancient culture that had pondered such matters for millennia. There were sadhus -spiritual mystics - who used pot; gurus advocating free sex based on Tantric scriptures; religions like Jainism that were based on non-violence to all living creatures.

Ann knew none of this when she followed a boyfriend on a whim and landed at Bombay. She knew that drugs were involved, and shady deals and men older than herself who found her attractive. She was totally unprepared for an India that in return knew nothing of hippies except their reputation for nudity and being free and easy in matters sexual. The clothes she brought with her –mini skirts!

Ann BeCoy fully lived the whole hippy scene of the early 70's, intersecting with many great and wild spiritual teachers and friends while traveling India at the age of 18. This is a great coming of age story during a fascinating time in history. Highly recommended.

Interesting, the author takes you into her free world of adventure, where she is faced with choices and circumstances. I could not put it down, I loved the characters, their charm and journey of the Hippie Girl.

I read Anns Book and was tottaly enthraled .I thought her memory and imagination were excellent .I myself traveled in India at the same time and was fascinated at the country and all that happened to us .I read one review that stated miss this one ,it sounds like it was written by an 18 year old ,Well Ann was 18 at the time so it proves how vivid her memory is .I thought the book was fascinating and reveiling ,not everyone would want to tell the world the kind of things that happened to her ,yet she told her story without pulling any punches .It is said that many people in the world seek truth only to find they dont like the taste of it when it is served up .I think Ann Served up her truths very well.I would highly recommend this book to anyone and moreso to anyone who has traveled To India ,Especially back in the day 1970s ,as Ann And I Have
Good Job Girl
